Taking medication for weight loss has been primarily scrutinized by the media and the public, painting weight loss prescriptions in an unfair, negative light. The truth is that weight loss medication can change many people's lives and help them beat the complex issue of obesity. Rather than solely focusing on a lifestyle change approach, patients can have added help through medication like Semaglutide and Tirzepatide-based prescriptions. Tirzepatide is one of the newest weight loss prescriptions that can help people shed weight and regain their sense of self.

Allure Esthetic offers a Tirzepatide weight loss program for all their patients. This in-depth treatment uses customized Tirzeepatide and general lifestyle changes to create patient balance and health.

How Does Tirzepatide Work?

Although similar to semaglutide, Tirzepatide has added compounds that make it more successful for weight loss. Semaglutide only targets one food intake hormone. However, Tirzepatide targets not just one but two hormone receptors in the body. It triggers the GLP-1 hormone and the GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) receptor, the two hormones controlling our brain's response to food intake.

The medication then acts as a replacement for the hormone, binding to the cell and controlling the actions of the hormones. Tirzepatide has a broader range of action across the body, targeting both food response hormones. This allows Tirzepatide patients to feel fuller faster and for more extended periods of time. It also reduces the production of stomach acids, which forces the stomach to process food at a delayed rate.

Additionally, the prescription comes with fewer side effects when compared to semaglutide-based medications. Because it is a second-generation medication, Tirzepatide has been adjusted to play a more encompassing role in the body's hormonal system, which can reduce the side effects and promote a higher success rate.

Tirzepatide Vs. Semaglutide

Weight loss medications were first popularized by the semaglutide-based prescription of Ozempic and Wegovy medications. However, Tirzepatide is quickly gaining popularity.

While both semaglutide and tirzepatide-based medications effectively aid patients with type 2 diabetes, specific differences might make one medication better for a patient than the other. The table below highlights certain differences between the two prescriptions.

Tirzepatide

  • Only offered through injections
  • Works with two hormones
  • Higher result rate and effectiveness
  • Can benefit digestive functions
  • Possibly more financially sustainable
  • Administered with a higher dosage
  • A GLP-1 second-generation medication

Semaglutide

  • Offered through injections and tablets
  • Works with only one hormone
  • Still effective but may not drastically increase weight loss
  • Cost-effective
  • Slows digestion but can have added side-effects
  • Given lower dosage amounts
  • A GLP-1 first-generation medication

Dr. Sajan and the trusted Tirzepatide specialists at Allure Esthetic can help patients find the best weight loss program for patients in Seattle. Every patient is unique and will be better suited for one medication over the other.

Tirzepatide Weight Loss Treatment

Before beginning the Tirzepatide weight loss program, patients must attend a consultation with a provider at Allure Esthetic. This consultation can be held in person or virtually to accommodate every patient’s needs and availability. Dr. Sajan will need specific information during this consultation to ensure the patient can safely begin the program. The information the patient should provide includes:

  • Recent and prior medical history
  • Previous weight loss methods/treatments
  • Lifestyle habits
  • Current weight
  • Family medical history
  • Recent prescriptions

Once the patient has been approved to begin Mounjaro, Dr. Sajan will devise a personalized Seattle weight loss plan. This plan will include a personalized amount of Tirzepatide, general nutritional guides, and recommended exercise regimens. All of these combined will help patients lose weight and transform their way of life.

Tirzepatide Injections Seattle

Patients will need to attend an in-person or virtual overview of how to self-administer the Tirzepatide injection. Dr. Sajan or a provider will walk every patient through the injection process to make it as worry-free as possible. The injections should be administered once a week and rotated between the thigh, stomach, or bicep. The dose of the medication is adjustable and depends on the patient's response and overall success.

Follow Up Appointments

The providers at Allure Esthetic will schedule monthly check-in appointments with every Tirzepatide weight loss patient in Seattle. This will help them adjust the dose to fit the patient's needs and track their progress.

Following the nutrition and exercise programs is the best way to ensure success. However, significant lifestyle changes can be complex, so patients should allow themselves to start slow and strategically build healthy habits. By eliminating processed foods, sugars, and fats, patients will see a drastic decrease in their weight. A well-balanced diet and regular physical activity allow the benefits of Tirzepatide to work at a higher rate.

The follow-up appointments will help patients keep track of their progress and ensure they are on the correct dose amount. Allure Esthetic has providers on call 24/7 that can help patients with any concern, question, or need at any time.

Frequently
Asked Questions

1. When Will I See The Results From Tirzepatide?

There are a variety of factors that contribute to the results of Tirzepatide treatment. However, many patients begin seeing results around the twelve to sixteen-week mark. Patients who stick to healthier diets and lifestyles often see results faster than patients who do not.

2. How Much Does Tirzepatide Cost?

At Allure Esthetic, the compounded Tirzepatide has a monthly flat fee of $750. This includes the monthly prescription, all appointments, both in-person and virtual, and access 24/7 access to on-call doctors.

3.Are There Any Side-Effects From Tirzepatide?

The side effects of compounded Tirzepatide for weight loss are similar to those of semaglutide. However, most patients report that the side effects are less severe and often temporary as their body adjusts to the medication. Some side effects can include:

  • Upset or queasy stomach
  • Acid reflux
  • Disruption in bowel movements
  • Acute abdominal pain
  • Swelling at the injection site
  • Itching at the injection site
  • Rare chance of labored breathing
  • Rare chance of facial swelling
  • Rare chance of an allergic reaction

4. Should I Take Semaglutide or Tirzepatide for Weight Loss?

Both Semaglutide and Tirzepatide medications greatly aid in weight loss. Whether one is better can depend on the patient’s personal records, genetics, and overarching goals. Dr. Sajan can help patients find the best Seattle weight-loss medication for them.

5. Do You Have To Take Tirzepatide Forever?

Tirzepatide is a long-term medicine; however, the patient’s goal is to build healthy habits and maintain them while continuing injections. Once they achieve their ideal weight, patients may be able to slowly come off the medication under the direction of Dr. Sajan or a provider at Allure Esthetic. Patients may need to continue a maintenance dose of Tirzepatide if they struggle to keep weight off without the medication.
